WE DID IT! Our training is complete, although we will never stop being learners. We have graduated from the Missionary Training Center and transitioned into the next phase of our ministry, partnership development. We have been students for the past 3 & 1/2 years, so to not have to go to any classes or do any “homework” has been an adjustment.
We have moved from Missouri to Alabama to visit with family, friends, and supporters. We will head to Florida in May, changing houses several times while we are there. Shelbyanne will start kindergarten in August of this year. I can’t believe how much she has grown. She was one year old when we started our training at the New Tribes Bible Institute in Jackson, MI, and now she is 4 & 1/2. Time definitely flies by when you are having fun and staying busy. Then in the early months of 2011 we hope to begin our ministry in Tanzania. We are not sure what that will look like as of yet, but we are excited to be heading in that direction and doing our part to expand the reach of the Gospel in Africa.
Please contact us if you would like to hear more about what God is doing in our lives and ministry.
Blessings in Serving Jesus,
